About the Underg(rad) Journal

This past year NSPIRG ran the 2nd annual Underg(RAD) Journal: a journal of research and writing in social and environmental justice. In our first year, we were open only to undergraduate students at Dalhousie and King's. This year, we expanded the journal, to include writing from students at all campuses in the HRM, as well as non-academic & community writing, and poetry. We want to create a space to highlight and share some of this amazing work, both celebrating it in our present day, and archiving it so that it can still be found in the future. We're excited about the future potential this project holds.

Description of Role

The goal is to turn the selected papers into a published, physical journal before the end of the summer. We are seeking volunteers to help do an initial round of editing the selected pieces for the journal.

• Experience editing written work
• An asset but not required: experience in editing academic work in the social sciences
• Experience working on project-based work with a timeline
• Experience or knowledge of social justice and anti-oppression principles

Timeline and Pay

This is an honorarium position for $10-20 per piece edited, length dependent. Payment will be provided via cheque upon completion of editing workload.

How many works volunteers edit will depend on volunteer comfort and the needs of the Underg(RAD).

Estimated timeline: We would like edits to be accomplished within one week.


The Nova Scotia Public Interest Research Group (NSPIRG) is a non-profit, social and environmental justice research and resource centre. We are located in the Student Union Building at Dalhousie University. NSPIRG’s mandate is to empower, educate and inspire action on social justice issues in Nova Scotia. We are a student and volunteer-driven organization working within an anti-oppression framework.
